We have been watering and checking out the plant daily. I should have went and checked on Lexi cause it was really quiet while I was working on laundry…
On Day 7, I walked into the play area to find Lexi totally covered in potting soil. That’s right. Lexi pulled a chair over to where she needed to climbed up and used the chair to get on top of the table. She was having sooo much fun and was all smiles! She had scooped out most of the dirt and was playing in it. I cleaned her up. Next, Zander caught on to what had happen and was upset. I explained that she was just playing and didn’t know better but Mommy would help teach her. He helped me clean up and I told him that on Monday or Tuesday we would replant.
Sunday morning as I was eating breakfast, I happen to catch a glimpse of something in the dirt. Woah a sprout. I asked Zander if he noticed anything in our planting box and he went crazy when he saw the little sprout. He was so excited he ran up stairs to tell his father who was in the shower. hehehe By the time we got home from church, there were 2 sprouts. And the next morning, he ran up to get me; to see there were now 3 sprouts.
So even though Lexi had fun in the soil; we still have carrots growing. Zander is loving watching them grow. He asked me, “Why do they grow so slowly?” I replied with, “Well, it took you 5 years to get this tall and its taken Lexi 19 months to grow how big she is.” He smiled so I think he liked my answer.
